Hello all.  I am one of those indie gaming friends that have absolutely zero interest in playing a game in a foreign language.  What is the point?  I don't understand what the game says.  I LOVE reading game manuals and instructions, in English.  I never skip them, and don't understand why anyone would.  Instructions are there for a reason, to teach you how to play a game.  After you get the basics down, you can then start playing and learn the intricacies and how to get good!  But, I have no interest in struggling just to understand the very basics of a game.  

Please consider converting the rules to English.  

Also - please make Imbroglio available for Android devices.  Since I switch from iPhone to Android Galaxy Note, I can no longer play my favorite puzzle game, Imbroglio.  

Thank you.  It sounds like you will just ignore my thoughts, but it doesn't hurt to ask.  And, you would get quite a few more sales if you made an English version.  Just saying.  Thanks!

The point is to experience something new and unusual. The fact of the matter is that this tension, apprehension, and temporary confusion at a foreign language is precisely the point. It's an experiment, as the creator said. Accessibility of language in this case would not provide an objective improvement to the experience but an alteration of that experience. In other words, this is itch.io, a platform born and breed for oddball experiences, and that's what Cinco Paus offers. It's OK to step out of your comfort zone sometimes.
